Towers would ‘brand’ Westfield

By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com

As Westfield continues to grow and develop, Mayor Andy Cook wants to create an artful identity for the city to distinguish itself development along U.S. 31. The Westfield Towers, a pair of 100-foot structures, would provide an iconic landmark for the city. Cook said the structure combines a masonry base with metal-mesh and a top with lights. Cook said the double towers concept is the result the Grand Junction Task Force brainstorming. “I asked them to come up with something impactful for the U.S. 31/Ind. 32 interchange. They’ve been working on this for a couple years,” he said. “We asked them to dream big and not be limited.” A preliminary estimate has the towers costing $750,000 to $1 million each, but officials won’t have a firm cost until the project is bid in August. Cook said funding would come from the city’s sale of its water and wastewater utilities to Citizens Energy, which is currently before the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission. The $91-million deal would be used to pay off utility debt and provide the city with $45 million to spend on local projects. “The proceeds are being prioritized by the city council,” Cook said, adding the top three priorities are infrastructure improvements, roadway resurfacing and trail and park improvements. “The towers would not come at the expense of needed infrastructure improvements. If the sale doesn’t go through, you won’t see the towers.” Cook said spending $3,000 to $5,000 in landscaping would not create the impactful image he wants Westfield to have for residents and guests. “It’s a piece of art. There are going to be people that like it and people that don’t. I remember when we first put Redman downtown or did the mural (on Union Street Flowers),” he said. “The need for something impactful is because of the uniqueness (of the project). We’re trying to brand Westfield… Make an impact on visitors that says this is Westfield, Ind.” The U.S. 31 Major Moves project, which will be under construction through 2015 in Westfield, upgrades the highway to a freeway with interchanges replacing stoplights. The Westfield Towers will provide a permanent image to travelers. “INDOT has been informed of our design and the

DISPATCHES Not changing plans – Despite the possibility of closing up to 20 Ivy Tech facilities statewide, the community college will open a Hamilton County campus in Noblesville. Ivy Tech is considering closing a quarter of its 72 facilities because of a nearly $68-million deficit but received funding and incentives from Hamilton County. State Sen. Luke Kenley was able to provide $12 million in the newly adopted state budget for Ivy Tech to make renovations at the current Noblesville East Middle School. Noblesville residents voted to approve a $28-million referendum last month that constitutes the district sell the building to Hamilton County for an Ivy Tech campus. Hamilton County and the City of Noblesville have also provided financial assistance for the deal. Ceremony – The public is cordially invited to attend the open installation of officers at Job’s Daughters International, Bethel 68 Westfield/ Carmel at 2 p.m. Saturday, June 15. Cheyenne Marie Herring is the Honored Queen–elect. Daughters are asked to bring their robe to assist with retiring and closing ceremonies. Bethel 68 Westfield/Carmel is located next to Carmel High School.

base has already been bid and is part of the construction phase in 2014/2015,” he said. “The construction of the towers will take place during that construction or some time later. There’s obvious savings to constructing it concurrently.” Once the Grand Park Sports Complex opens, officials estimate the city will see a dramatic increase of visitors – up to a million per year. Cook also is working to draw regional and national sports tournaments as well as amateur and professional teams and wants to prepare the city if television networks come to town. “Most networks, be it covering the Pacers, Colts, Final Four or Super Bowl, when they show shots of the city it’s Monument Circle. People recognize that as Indianapolis. We’d like to be able to accomplish the same,” he said.

Get your motor running – The Humane Society for Hamilton County will host its second Ruff Ride Motorcycle Event on June 22. Stops on the ride include Hoosier Park Racing & Casino in Anderson where riders will get $5 in Casino Cash to spend that day, and $10 in Casino Cash to use at a later date. The ride starts and ends at the Harley Davidson dealership on East 96th Street where food, fun, music and vendors will be located. Cost is $40 and includes lunch before the ride, Ruff Ride 2013 T-shirt and dinner at the end of the ride. One hundred percent of the proceeds benefit the abused, injured and unwanted animals at the shelter. Vacation Bible school – Epiphany Lutheran Church is hosting its Vacation Bible School from 9 a.m. to noon June 12 through 14. VBS will be in Westfield at Rather Be Dancing, 132 S. Union St., for children ranging from 3-yearsold to fifth grade. The Bible school is free for children and registration is available at www. epiphanylcms.org.

Body found

The Belfry Theatre, 10690 Greenfield Ave., Noblesville is performing “Spitfire Grill” this weekend and next.

Show times are 8 p.m. June 14 and 15 and 2 p.m. June 16.

A missing Westfield woman’s body was found in a Carmel storage facility.

Ameriana Bank to host Marketplace at Westfield

By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com

Westfield residents will be able to shop for local produce and homemade goods this summer after a local business stepped up to provide an alternative location farmers market for a canceled annual tradition. In the absence of the 2013 Westfield Farmers Market, Ameriana Bank Manager Rob Garrett announced that the banking center will host the inaugural 2013 Marketplace at Westfield beginning June 14. “We’ve always enjoyed being a part of the Farmers Market, both as sponsors and patrons. We couldn’t imagine a Westfield summer without it, so when we heard the news of its cancellation, we wanted to do something to keep it alive in our community,” Garrett said. Garrett invited the vendors who were previously committed to the Westfield Farmers Market to set up in the bank’s parking lot at 3333 E. Ind. 32 at Carey Road. The Marketplace will be held at the same time as the market was scheduled – 5 to 8 p.m. Fridays from June 14 through Sept. 27. Garrett said the market will be held after the bank closes so it is not expected to impact any customers. “We’re not replacing it. We wanted to provide an opportunity to keep the market going this summer,” Garrett said. “We did not want to step on anybody’s toes so we talked with the city and

Downtown Westfield Association. Everyone was very, very supportive.” The decision to cancel the 2013 Westfield Farmers Market was made last month. The DWA said a decline in vendor numbers and the construction taking place along U.S. 31 and in downtown Westfield were the primary causes for the cancelation of the market’s sixth season. “The stars were not aligning for the market this year,” said city spokeswoman Carrie Cason. “We knew the attendance would be down be-

cause of construction. Vendors want to have attendance, or they won’t come back.” Garrett said it’s not his intention to provide a competing market but a temporary fix while the DWA reevaluates its market plans for the future. “We changed the name so there wouldn’t be any confusion,” he said. “I’m a bank not a farmers market.” Ameriana is in communication with the vendors slated to be at this season’s farmers market and knows that 20 of the 35 booths plan to attend the new location. The bank is providing the space for Marketplace at no cost to the vendors, and admission is free. “We don’t have a lot of room for anyone to show up. We’re trying to keep it simple and offer space to the farmers market vendors,” Garrett said. Ameriana recently celebrated its fourth year in Westfield. Since it opened in 2009, Garrett said the bank’s intention was to root itself within the community “We are not the only bank in Westfield. A way to distinguish ourself was to get involved and show support for other local businesses and nonprofits who help Westfield succeed, too,” he said. “We try to give back as much as we can. It’s more than just a bank, we really want to help the community try to become a better place.” For more information about the 2013 Marketplace at Westfield, visit www.ameriana.com, www.facebook.com/amerianabank or call 867-7740.

By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com Kelsie Lancaster is looking for answers to who killed her beloved horse, Doc, in a freak accident at her family’s rural cover story Westfield home on Memorial Day. Kelsie’s mother, Karen, was mowing the family’s pasture and had her attention on the horses when she saw an unsettling sight around 3:45 p.m. May 27. “He flipped his head up in the air, fell to his knees and then the ground,” said Kelsie, 21, who was also watching her horse. “I first thought he was having a seizure, but his legs went really rigid. I was out the door by the time he hit the ground.” The Lancasters immediately called veterinarian Bruce McDavitt, who arrived five minutes later. McDavitt gave Doc medicine to prevent colic and pain killers as the group tried to diagnose why blood was coming from the horse’s head. “We went through every possible injury – a rock from the mower, but it was blowing in the opposite direction; it was not the shape of a kick from another horse or matched the shape of the post,” Kelsie said. “All the time, we weren’t really sure what had happened.” What happened, according to police, is that a stray bullet struck Doc. “They took it very seriously,” said Kelsie’s father, Kent, adding that metal detectors were used to try and find the bullet after it was not found on x-rays of Doc’s head and neck. “They were out here four days in a row. I’ve been really impressed with the (Westfield) police… They want to prevent this from happening again.” Doc went into shock and his condition worsened. While keeping an eye on his vitals, McDavitt informed the family that the bullet wound would be fatal as he was brain dead. “He had struggled a lot,” Kelsie said. “From muscle memory, he kept trying to get up but he kept falling. He was going to break a leg if he kept getting up.” The Lancasters made the decision to put Doc out of his misery and prevent him from injuring himself further. X-rays of his head afterward showed Doc had skull fractures. Kelsie got Doc as a birthday surprise in 2007. “I was super excited when I got him. I cried,” she said. The family was looking for a larger horse for

Kelsie to barrel race with. Doc was a retired racehorse and word of mouth spread that his owners were looking to sell him. “For some reason I just knew I liked him from the beginning. I jumped on him without any hesitation,” she said.

Kelsie said Doc was “a special horse” with gentle eyes and calm demeanor. “He was more aware of you than you were of him. He was a horse I put a friend on if they had no idea what they were doing,” she said. “Nothing scared him much and he was always making

us laugh.” Doc joined Kelsie at Purdue for one year when she was Ms. Purdue Rodeo Association 2012. He returned to the Lancaster home this school year to heal from an injury. Throughout their six years together, the two competed in the National Barrel Horse Association Youth Worlds in Jackson, Miss., following Kelsie’s sophomore, junior and senior years at Westfield High School. “The trust between the two of us, I can’t explain it,” Kelsie said. “You’re on top of 1,100 pounds of pure muscle with a mind of their own running as fast as they could and slamming on the breaks to round a barrel. People fall off all the time. I had complete trust he would go in there, turn the barrel and keep me safe. After six years, we were at the point where we were in such synchronization. I knew what he would do before he did it.” Kelsie, a senior majoring in sociology and criminal justice with a minor in forensic science, said Doc was more than a pet. “A bond with a horse is not like anything else. Only people who experienced that bond understand the intensity of it,” she said. “The only way I can begin to explain it is like a bond with your dog or best friend. He was an animal, but the bond is so strong. Moving on is something I’m trying to do. It’s hard, very, very hard.” While the family is mourning the loss of their horse, they are grateful. Karen was mowing approximately 55 feet away from Doc and 100 feet from their home. “We were lucky it wasn’t my mom. I’m glad we’re not burying her,” Kelsie said. “She was in between the horse and the shooter – in the line of fire,” Kent said. “It could have been someone’s backyard with a swing set. I know it had to go by her or over her.” The Lancasters, who live on Joliet Road, said it is not uncommon to hear gunshots in their area a couple of times each week but did not hear one at the time of Doc’s shooting – making them believe it was fired a mile or more away. The family is quick to say this is not a gun-control issue but one of safety and responsibility. “It’s ignorance,” Kent said. “It isn’t the firearm that did the damage, it’s whoever put their finger on the trigger when it wasn’t pointed where it should have been pointed. Know your target and what’s beyond it. It’s about safe shooting. There are so many families around here.”

Cooperative giving

It is our position that underutilized volunteerism, resources and talent should be shifted to the organizations that need it most. Often times, there is an overabundance of volunteers at schools or organizations who, in actuality, need them the least. Low volunteer turnover can easily put the squeeze on available opportunities. PTO monopolies and tiresome politics can downright suck the enthusiasm out of a willing and able volunteer. There are many schools in Hamilton and Boone counties that have a low parent volunteer rate. If you want to read to children, and there is no opportunity at your child’s school, volunteer at a school in need. A great example of cooperative giving is by the staff and students at Creekside Middle School. During a recent Creekside Student Challenge, students and staff donated books to The Lunch Club in Sheridan that serves meals to children and adults in need during summers and school breaks. The Lunch Club provides books for loan to all participants. In 2007, 400 meals were served during the summer. Last year, 7,610 meals were served to adults and children in need during all school breaks.

How are you? Commentary by Terry Anker In the world of everyday interactions, there are certain phrases and gestures that we all use as indicators of greeting, transition from one point to another, of hierarchy and of civility. They can be as simple as hello or as subtle as shifting one’s eyes away when it is time for a subject or conversation to end. But somehow, and without any formal training, we all seem to understand the rules. Of course, some are better and more adept at reading and responding to these cues and others appear hopelessly adrift, unable to receive even the most slow-pitch of gestures. But there is a third group of us, imagining ourselves to be above the petty and insincere who refuse, as much on principle as ego, to perpetuate the custom. The man taking our restaurant order is simply doing a job, we might say, therefore, there is little reason to engage in the mindless banter of, “How are you tonight?” – or please and thank you. Do we really care whether this person is

having a good day at work? And isn’t it a waste of words to say please when we clearly expect service and he clearly expects payment? Are these interactions superfluous? To me, these exchanges are invaluable. They reinforce the social contract between us all. Simply put, one woman’s servant is another’s customer. By acknowledging the strata and clarifying roles, don’t we, in fact, enhance the speed and pleasure of the interaction rather than waste time or engage in unnecessary social fiction? With please, we show respect for the waiter’s toil. With thank you, he makes it clear that he understands the order and will deliver it soon. With ‘How do you do?’ are we inviting a healthy inquiry or just signaling a preparedness for exchange? Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC.

It’s highly interesting and maybe a bit frightening to hear President Barack Obama’s administration suggest that the horrific and deadly attack eight months ago in Benghazi “was a long time ago” and that the Internal Revenue Service probes of conservative political-interest groups were the travails of a few “rogues.” Neither was on point. Late last month there was a vehement verbal volley between White House spokesman Jay Carney and Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, one during which Issa labeled Carney “a paid liar.” Well, is he? Who knows? We know this much from history: Both sides of the aisle are adept at talking out of both sides of their respective mouths. Sometimes it’s too much, or too little, to believe. We do suppose, however, that a rising tide is heading toward the White House. It’s patently shameful that the American voters have reduced the presidency to what it has become. It didn’t happen all at once through Obama’s residency in Washington. His camp’s effort is the latest in a long, saddening line of presidential failures. Bonus: More than a lifetime of angst dosed by Congress, which continues to look for ways to spend our money and does. Really, if you think about it when watching Obama tell Americans, “I didn’t know about that,” it’s totally believable; we don’t believe he’s lying. Therefore, he is the Bystander President. And this takes us back to the American voter, whose due diligence was not done with respect this administration or, really, any administration since the days of Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower – except, maybe, for that of Ronald Reagan. The two parties are incapable of running this nation to effect the well-oiled superpower it should be. Until a viable third party gains momentum and becomes coast-to-coast meaningful, we’re getting and stepping in exactly that which we deserve.

Oh, the dreaded days of summer Commentary by Danielle Wilson

agers is enough to send any normal person to professional help. My sanity and patience levels desperately need a nice long break from over exposure to Axe body spray and girl drama. But come summer, I’m simply trading one taxing environment for another. Would I rather spend the day teaching algebra to bored juniors or wrangling technology-addicted kiddos outside? Hmmm. I’d rather just enjoy a cocktail. It’s not much better for moms who work yearround either. They have to pull some pretty fine logistical magic out their wazoos if they want to ensure their school-age heirs don’t spend the entire summer watching Little House reruns and playing Skyrim. “In how many camps can you enroll three kids if the age groups don’t align, the nanny can’t be here until 9, and Suzy has to be in Cheer III with her bestie?” Sweet mercy, these moms are miracle workers! You go, ladies! My point is, summer is sometimes more stressful then the day-to-day grind of the school year. Sure your bedtime schedule is more relaxed, but having to create your own routine and structure to ensure the safety and harmony of your family is challenging in its own right. Good luck to us all! Peace out.

Summer is upon us my friends, and if you’re anything like me (mother, slightly anal), you’ll appreciate the small amount of humor panic that has set in as I prepare for 10 weeks of children at home. With me. All. The. Time. Don’t get me wrong. I love the thought of not having to strong-arm my kids into doing homework every night, the idea of not using my scant knowledge of chemistry to determine out how to keep the Trix yogurt cold without ice packs (which they’ll surely throw away with their retainers), and the notion that I will no longer be schlepping my precious little angels to 700 different after-school activities in various parts of the state. I cherish all of that, for about five days. Like childbirth, I soon forget the pain and anguish of the academic year and am ready to do it all again by mid-June. And I’ve learned that it doesn’t really matter what kind of mom you are in terms of your job status. When I stayed at home, all summer meant was an increased risk of drowning, sunburn, bee stings and Kool-Aid carpet stains. It didn’t change my day-to-day schedule, except for a few older kids hanging around. I looked forward to Aug. 10 with my kids’ anticipation of Christmas. “Please, Santa, bring me a big yellow school bus!” As a teacher, of course, I can’t wait for classes to be over.

I’m a competitive person. For example, I obsess about how my lawn looks in comparison to others on my block. I noticed some humor bare spots recently, so I addressed the issue with a trip to a local nursery. Then at the Memorial Day get-together last week, people were discussing Joe’s yard, which was suffering from the same problem. I thought, there, but for the grace of sod, go I.   Now I have a new challenge to deal with. It began with a letter from Indianapolis Power and Light, a single page that has reawakened my latent paranoid tendencies. The envelope seemed innocent enough. It looked like my monthly electric bill.  But the contents were far more ominous. The page was filled with charts and graphs and the info was labeled: LAST THREE MONTHS NEIGHBOR COMPARISON My heart jumped and my pulse raced as I scanned the enclosed printout only to learn that I was consuming more energy than those identified by IPL as “Your Most Efficient Neighbors.”  I felt so exposed that I pulled the curtains down and then turned off the 11 lights, three TVs and two computers I had left on the night before. To really rub it in, IPL informed me that I used 40 percent more electricity than my most efficient neighbor. Who was this person? Which house did he live in? It didn’t say. Was he hiding

B OTOX

LIPS

in the shadows? It’s hard to find a shadow when you never have any lights on. I asked my neighbor Mort if he received the same kind of letter. Mort is a nice guy, but he always leaves his garage door open. I thought he was just forgetful, but apparently this is part of his grand plan to be recognized by IPL as a “conservation superstar.” “Every kilowatt counts,” Mort told me while we were standing in his driveway. “If I never close that overhead door, I can save $1.49 a year.” Then he asked what I was doing to conserve resources in my home. I was tired of the conversation so I told him I only shower once a month. Mort walked back into the garage… and down came the door. The idea that someone is monitoring what goes on in and around my home is creepy. Whenever I look outside, strange people are reading my meters, putting colored lines on my neighbors’ lawns, installing invisible fences, looking through tiny telescopes mounted on tripods, and stuffing propaganda in my mailbox. Sure, call them coupons if you want, but see those two little dots in the word Meijer? That must be a secret code for something.

Learning to eat again

Commentary by Mike Redmond

Ordinarily I don’t take requests, but a bunch of people have written to ask how I’m doing with my weight-loss surgery, and humor I thought this might be the most efficient way to answer. I don’t intend to make a habit of it. As I said a couple of months ago, I’m not fond of any piece of so-called commentary falling under the “My ( Fill-In-The Blank) Journey.” In my case, if I wanted people to know every detail of my fill-in-the-blank journey, I’d invite them over to read the scale with me every morning. So, to the question at hand: How am I doing? Fine, thanks. There. Are we done? Oh, OK. I suppose some detail is in order. All right, here we go. To date I’ve lost about 60 pounds. You better believe it feels good. And no, I’m not telling you how much more I want to lose, for a couple of reasons: a. I don’t know, and b. Even if I did I’m not sure I’d want it blabbed all over the place. A fellow has to have some cards he doesn’t show. My procedure is called the duodenal switch, which is pronounced just like it is spelled: switch. Simply put, it reduces the size of the stomach and re-routes the intestines to reduce the amount of food you can eat and limit absorption of what food you do.

Simply put, I have to learn how to eat again, which is a weird thing to say when you consider that eating is something at which I used to be really, really good, if quantity counts for anything. Now I take my meals from salad plates with baby utensils. I also drink from a sippy cup and take Flintstones vitamins by the handful. When they say they are taking you back to the beginning on this learning-to-eat business, they’re not kidding. They’re also not kidding when they say that the duodenal switch brings with it a few gastrointestinal side effects, or should I say sound effects, that might give you pause. And I say this as someone who was raised around farm animals. The procedure can make you – there’s no other way to say it – gassy. Not always, but when it happens, it is impressive. And during these times you begin to see the wisdom of our ancestors, who put the Necessary in a little building away from the house. Such a building now might help to cut down on times when family members regard you with annoyance and say, “Do you mind? We can’t hear the television.” Mike Redmond is an author, journalist, humorist and speaker. Write him at mike@ mikeredmondonline. com or P.O. Box 44385, Indianapolis, IN 46244.

AUSTISM CLINIC OF INDIANA New hope for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADD and ADHD

Highly Trained Medical Staff • Advanced Individualized Treatment Options • Most Major Medical Insurance Plans Accepted Genetic Consultation • Review of Medical records • Laboratory testing “While early intervention is critical, ASD Treatment Clinic taught us it is never too late with children on the Autism Spectrum. We have three teenage children on the spectrum with varying ranges of disabilities. With Genetic Consultants of Indiana, ASD Treatment Clinic we learned what was happening to our children from the inside out. I call it our roadmap. We found out what our children needed without guessing or trying experimental treatments. Plus we loved that our major medical insurance was accepted.” - Bob & Sharon Smith, IN

“A child sneaks out of the house, runs away, is hyper, has minimal focus and can’t socialize with friends for more than a minute. That used to be our son, Jack.

• SOCIALIZATION: Why is my child having difficulty making friends? • IMPULSIVENESS: Why doesn’t my child understand consequences of his/her actions? • FOCUSING: Why does my child have problems paying attention in school and at home? • HYPERACTIVITY: Why can’t my child sit still, and has trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep? • ANGER: Why does my child display such anger and gets out of control with his/her emotions? If you can relate to any of these questions there is help.

15

People think the answer to autism and ADHD are psychiatric medicines, but we knew that was only going to cover up his real symptoms. Despite this, we tried several mainstream treatments that produced little to no results. In the six months that Jack has been on the protocol through ASD Treatment Clinics, he has experienced much improvement with his focus, learning ability, behavior and overall wellbeing. Early intervention is very important for children on the autism spectrum and we thank God that we were led to the ASD Treatment Clinic. Jack now has a treatment that we can trust will improve not only his life but the lives of our entire family.” - Renee and Ted Zlotopolski, Arnold, MO

Good-bye, old friend

Commentary by Toby Stark

We recently said good-bye to a dear friend… a friend that had been a gracious host and a source of comfort chaucie’s place to so many children in Hamilton County. The farmhouse that was Chaucie’s Place’s home for 10 years was demolished last week so that its owner, St.Vincent Carmel Hospital, can begin helping even more families in our community with its new St.Vincent Women’s Center. More than 2,600 children who had reported sexual or physical abuse or neglect had been interviewed in that farmhouse. Children who felt their first glimmer of hope inside those four walls, first felt support and a small sense that things may be okay. It was also inside that farmhouse where Chaucie’s Place leadership made the decisions to increase the organization’s focus on child sexual abuse prevention; understanding that there is no greater responsibility than keeping children safe, than preventing harm from happening to children. That farmhouse became Chaucie’s Place’s first home because of the Hamilton County community’s determination to find a better way for child victims, and because of the generosity of many organizations including The Legacy Fund, the Lilly Foundation, and – of course – St.Vincent Carmel Hospital who leased us the home for a mere $1 a year. St.Vincent Carmel was a generous landlord

and remains a steadfast partner. The spirit of our farmhouse lives on in our new facility, owned by Martin Marietta and leased to Chaucie’s Place for $1 a year. We salvaged almost everything that could be salvaged – to eliminate waste, save money, and to ensure a little bit of our past joins with our future. Thankyou for 10 wonderful years of caring, protection and healing. We thank St.Vincent Carmel for its hospitality and wish it well with its expansion of services for the families of Hamilton County. Toby Stark is the executive director of Chaucie’s Place, a nonprofit Child Advocacy Center that works to prevent child sexual abuse and youth suicide.

‘Olympics of community theatre’ approaching

By Nina Johnson • editorial@youarecurrent.com Carmel Repertory Theatre will host AACTFest 2013 June 17 – 23 at the Center for the Performing Arts. More than aactfest 2013 7,000 community theaters competed to participate in this national showcase, sponsored by the American Association of Community Theatre. “I quote technical director Keith Matters when I say this is the Olympics of community theatre,” said director Dave Dufour of Elkhart Civic Theatre. When Carmel Repertory reorganized leadership this March, June McCarty Clair volunteered to serve as chairperson and her husband, John, signed up as co-chair. More than 50 local volunteers offered to assist with duties from transportation coordination to talent acquisition. “We have been so gratified at the number of volunteers who have stepped forward and offered to help make this festival a success,” June Clair said. “We will be ready to roll out the red carpet.” AACT Executive Director Julie Crawford expects Carmel’s inaugural year will surpass expectations. “June and John Clair are doing a fabulous job,” she said. For AACT members, the week includes a Community Theatre Management Conference and Director’s Workshops at the Renaissance Hotel. The public is welcome to attend performances and exhibits beginning Wednesday at the Center. Twelve award-winning productions will be performed in the Tarkington Theatre on afternoons and evenings Wednesday through Saturday. One-hundred seats are reserved for the public. Tickets for each block of shows can be purchased through the Center. A stage design competition will be displayed in the Tarkington upper lobby’s Knebel Room. The community is invited to attend Friday night’s free open air concert on the green. “The Friday night event is going to be a talent showcase,” June Clair said. From 5:30 to 6:45 p.m., the concert will offer a variety of routines and live music. Julia Bonnet, first winner of the Michael Feinstein Great American Songbook Competition, will perform. Director of “Cradle & All,” Susan Leslie Edgren, shared Wisconsin Rapids Community Theatre’s excitement about preparing for its first national

competition. “We have tweaked a couple of moments between characters and given certain set pieces a better look,” she said. This Daniel Goldfarb comedy offers two polar perspectives on parenthood. Mary Beth King, director of “Leading Ladies,” explained Minnesota’s Dakota Fine Arts Consortium “rehearsed in five separate spaces, performed in seven different theaters.” This Ken Ludwig farce involves two characters posing as relatives to scramble over inheritance, disguises and romantic predicaments. After polling cast and crew, King said they look forward to many aspects of the event and “celebrating the art that is supported by our diverse hometown communities.” Elkhart Civic Theatre’s Director Dufour described a minimal Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde stage with a rolling red door and special lighting to create a Victorian atmosphere.

“It’s an unusual version,” he said. “There’s actually four different people playing Mr. Hyde.” Dufour explained Elkhart’s last national competition was 10 years ago. Crew practiced stage assembly until they achieved a swift seven minutes. “Competitions require timing restrictions,” he explained. “You’re allowed 10 minutes maximum for set-up and then for take-down.” Ohio director Charles Matthews said the Actor’s Guild of Parkersburg “look forward to making the five and a half hour drive to Carmel.” The troupe is “excited to bring our production of ‘Tuesdays with Morrie’” to the competition as well as “the networking opportunities, workshops and the ability to see community theater at its finest.” AACTFest concludes with a June 23banquet and awards ceremony announcing the 2013 national winners.

And don’t forget to check out the Special Edition CruZionsville 2013 Red Wine at Hopwood Cellars Winery. Limited to 100 bottles, the cost is $25 per bottle with proceeds going to the Alzheimer’s Association. “It just warms the heart to see so many people who want to promote our beautiful little town and do something for Alzheimer’s,” Tarr said. CruZionsville will be held rain or shine. For more information visit http://www.cruzionsville. com.

“Then we will have the singing of the National Anthem and will launch 100 balloons with the Alzheimer’s logo on them to commemorate the day,” Tarr said. From there, the fun is just beginning. CruZionsville will feature live entertainment, a DJ, kids area, style show and, of course, “some absolutely stunning automobiles for people to look at including the 356, 911, Cayman, as well as the Boxster model,” Tarr said. “There will just be something for everyone and just a lot of fun. That is why I think it is bigger than a car show.” Tarr said. “In addition to our celebrity judges we will have kids judging the cars as well this year.

The third annual CruZionsville will take to the streets June 15 with a little something for everyone. The event raises money car show for the Alzheimer’s Association  - Greater Indiana Chapter. “This is just really a great community event as well as an opportunity for different non-profits to work together to create something in our community,” said Steve Tarr, CruZionsville chair. “I wanted to create something that would be fun and bring people to our community. We think it’s pretty special.” The event, sponsored by the Central Indiana Region Porsche Club of America, raised $500 its first year for the Alzheimer’s Associaton; $5,000 in its second year and this year, Tarr said he’d like to hit $10,000. “This is just a terrible, terrible disease, and we need to create more awareness for it,” Tarr said. “Anyone who has been touched by this through a family member or loved knows how debilitating it can be. I personally have experienced a family member with this and I just feel strongly about doing all we can to create more visibility about the disease.” The day will start at The Meadows, 675 S. Ford Rd., where the Porsches will be staged for viewing during breakfast. A police escort will then lead the cars downtown where they will be displayed along Main Street throughout the day.

A look in the funhouse mirror By Jay Harvey • news@currentinwestfield.com Sometimes, a distorted look at ourselves and what we like to do seems the most enjoyable path toward self-knowledge. theatre Serious critiques can be energizing, but not as much fun as the view in the funhouse mirror. That’s what Off-Main Street Players is up to with its season-ending production of “Amateurs”  by Tom Griffin, a 67-year-old playwright best known for “The Boys Next Door,” a 1988 play about men with mental disabilities sharing a group home. “Amateurs” is far different; it takes an amusing look at ambition, drive, hard work and sometimes misdirected dreams in the world of community theater.  Director Marcus Waye said that the announcement of auditions produced an unusual amount of interest, probably related to the comedy’s theme: the motivations and varied gifts of volunteer actors and how a drama critic’s sudden health crisis at an opening-night cast party generates soul-searching and exposes the motivations of people drawn to do theater in their spare time. “(‘Amateurs’) piqued a lot of people’s interest,” said Waye, a 40-year-old veteran of the Zionsville all-volunteer company.  Many of them had in mind the hit movie spoof of community theater aspirations, “Waiting for Guffman,” which Waye described as

“more cartoonish” than Griffin’s play. “This has a more realistic setting, and a lot of pathos to it,” he said. Still, Griffin “skewers  community theater — the archetypes are pretty broad, and he nails them pretty well,” Waye said. Well enough to draw 17 people to audition for nine roles: “It was hard for me to cast this one,” said Waye, who has directed six shows for Off Main Street Players. “Everyone was really good.” The director and company dramaturg, whose day job is in IT at the Carmel Public Library, has been involved with the company since it revived in 2005 with a production of “Plaza Suite,” in which he played a bellhop. Waye’s total for OffMain Street Players amounts to about a dozen shows in various capacities. “I’m learning as I go,” he said.  A teachable moment lies at the core of “Amateurs.” The cast’s discovery of the ill critic’s unpublished review “holds a mirror up to their talent level,” Waye  said. “It challenges them to question how good they are and why they participate in theater.”

‘Amateurs’ • When: June 14 and 15 at 8 p.m. • Where: Zionsville Town Hall, 1100 W. Oak St. • Tickets: $12 and available at the venue or by contacting OMSP box office at 5953700 or www.offmainstreetplayers.org

Preparing to have a baby

Commentary by James Smith, MD

Making the decision to have a baby is one of life’s biggest milestones. As anticipation grows, there are steps prospective wellness parents can take to improve the chance of a healthy pregnancy. Couples should schedule a pre-conception appointment with a trusted doctor at least three months before attempting to become pregnant. Issues covered during this appointment may include: • The couple’s medical history including any health conditions, chronic conditions, medications and supplements, and family history of disease • Past pregnancies and any complications, such as Cesarean section, pre-term birth, gestational diabetes or pre-eclampsia (high blood pressure during pregnancy) • Any known history of inherited genetic disease or birth defects – If this is the case for either partner, the doctor may refer the couple to a genetic counselor. • Diet, including weight, recommended nutrition, any food allergies and prenatal vitamins. If a woman is overweight or underweight, it’s generally best to reach an ideal body mass index of between 20 and 25 before becoming pregnant. At least one month before conception, the prospective mother should begin taking a daily prenatal vitamin fortified with at least 0.4 milligrams

of folic acid to help prevent neural tube defects, such as spina bifida, in the newborn. (It’s generally recommended that all women of child-bearing age take folic acid to guard against these conditions should an unintended pregnancy occur.) • If a woman is not already exercising, it’s best to begin regular exercise before becoming pregnant. For most women, exercise can and should continue during pregnancy. Moderate exercise for 20 to 30 minutes on most days of the week is recommended. • If either partner smokes, the doctor can provide guidance on quitting. If alcohol or drug use is an issue, this should also be discussed with the doctor before becoming pregnant. • Birthing preferences, such as whether the couple wants to deliver in a hospital, certified birthing center or at home. Although there is much to consider, it’s important to remember that most women are well suited from both a health and lifestyle standpoint to have a healthy pregnancy.

Effective June 30, Calkins will lead the hospital’s 1,400-member medical staff while maintaining communication with various departments and physicians.

If you have been to any races or marathons recently, many runners have begun to wear knee high compression socks wellness or calf sleeves. Why is it beneficial? To understand the benefits of medical grade compression stockings, let’s take a look at the circulatory system. You may recall from biology class that blood circulates through our bodies via a network of veins and arteries. It is a closed system so that blood that is pumped from the heart to the legs must be moved back up the circulatory system to the heart. The calf muscle can actually be considered a “peripheral heart” in that it pumps venous blood against the force of gravity by walking and running. It is well known that compression stockings improve blood flow by helping the calf muscle pump more effectively, which helps keep blood from pooling in the legs. Stockings have been used for years with patients after surgery, to treat leg swelling and for varicose and spider veins. Now, there is growing evidence that athletic compression stockings may reduce muscle pain in the recovery phase (post-event soreness) after a race. Post-event muscle pain can occur for sev-

eral reasons: lactic acid build-up, micro trauma at the muscle fiber (myofibril) level, electrolyte depletion and a release of prostaglandins (inflammatory chemicals released during and after exercise). Compression is believed to reduce the muscle pain because they can reduce the myofibril micro trauma and increase the calf muscle pump efficiency, which clears out lactic acid and prostaglandins more effectively. What is less clear is the benefit of wearing them during a race. It is well documented that venous insufficiency is associated with swelling, inflammation and pain, but there are no definitive studies yet that show the benefit of use during the event. We do advise athletes with varicose vein disease to wear compression stockings during events to increase the calf muscle pump function while reducing swelling and venous pooling. For athletes without varicose vein disease, there may be a benefit to wearing athletic compression stockings after an event to help with recovery. Jeffery P. Schoonover, M.D., FAAFP, RVT, RPVI, practices with the Indiana Vein Specialists, 11876 Olio Road, Suite 700, Fishers. He can be reached at 348-3023. For more information, visit www.indyveins.com

Driving safely in cars with dogs

Commentary by John Mikesell

It is that time of the year, and things are finally beginning to heat up. We must be ever vigilant about our pets (and kids, canines too) and leaving them in the car when the outside temps are above 65 degrees. There are also many factors to allowing your dog to ride in the car with you. Consider all the canine passenger safeguards and select the one that will best suit your dog and your circumstances. Train your dog to behave in the car like you train him to do anything: by setting him up for success, and reinforcing the desired calm behavior. Be on the lookout for dogs at risk of heatstroke in cars on warm days. Don’t hesitate to call animal protection authorities or the police department if you see a dog suffering from the heat.

Other situations that warrant concern are: • A dog that interferes with the driver’s physical ability to drive the car. A dog sitting on the driver’s lap can interfere with steering. A dog who gets on or under the accelerator or brake pedals, hits the gear shift, or blocks the driver’s view can cause an accident. • A dog who interferes with the driver’s mental ability to drive the car. When the driver’s attention is taken away from the road to deal with the dog’s behavior, the dog has become a safety hazard. • A loose dog can become a flying missile if the car stops abruptly or is hit by another car. If the car windows break or the doors pop open in an accident, a loose dog can escape, get hit on the road, or run off and become lost. A loose dog also can fall or jump out of an open window or back of a truck.

Dispatches

• A dog with their head out a window can suffer injury to their eyes from flying debris, or worse, can have their head smashed by objects that pass too close to the car ( other vehicles, mirrors, signs, branches, etc.). • The temperature in a parked car on a warm (not even hot) day can kill a dog. Even on a cloudy day, cars can become uncomfortable and way too warm for your pet, even after a short time. As a rule, cracking the window on warm sunny days is not enough, so be very careful. My rule of thumb is if it is above 60 degrees and the sun is shining, I don’t leave Karma in the car. I can leave all the windows open and she will not jump out, however that does not keep someone from taking her out of the car, so I just don’t do it.

Lend, loan or borrow?

Commentary by Jordan Fischer

I had the peculiar fortune of hearing this cringe-worthy statement the other day: “I can’t drive over there right grammar guy now. My boyfriend is loaning my car.” After my ears stopped bleeding, I realized that at least I had my column for this week. The problem we have before us is a person not educated on the difference between the words “loan,” “lend” and “borrow.” Luckily, the Grammar Guy is here to help. Since “loan” and “lend” are similar in many ways, let’s talk about the odd duck out first: “borrow.” To “borrow” something is to take and use something that belongs to someone else with the intention of returning it. That “something” can be money, a possession, or even figuratively the person themselves if you’re drawing them away from their own task. “Borrow” is the other end of lending someone something. I “borrow” your car. You “lend” me your car. “Borrow” always goes on the receiving end of a loan. Now, for “lend” and loan:” “Loan” as a noun is the object being lent or borrowed. In the example above, the car is the loan. You can receive mone-

tary loans to buy a house or go to college, or loans in the form of property, for example a “loaner car” while yours is being repaired. “Loan” can also be used as a verb, however it is only used with concrete nouns: “I will loan you my car.” “Could you loan me $50?” The verb form of “loan” is much more widely used in America than Britain … but since we’re in America, I suppose that’s just fine. “Lend” acts only as a verb, and can be used for concrete or abstract nouns. For example, you could lend someone your car if theirs breaks down. More abstractly, you could lend a co-worker your experience with a problem you’ve faced before. Flowers can lend a room an outdoorsy feel. You get the picture. With “lend” and “loan,” you can always feel confident using “lend” if you need a verb, though “loan” is perfectly acceptable when talking about concrete nouns. As for “borrow,” if it still gives you trouble, remember this: You always borrow “from” someone, never “to” someone. Jordan Fischer is a contributing columnist for Current Publishing.

Invest in well-made, and measured, counter stools Commentary by Vicky Earley

My very first bar stools were a collection of the cap seat stools that can still be found at mass-market discounters and indoors superstore groceries. These soft wood beauties taxed my budget at $20 each, and I can honestly say that I over paid. I don’t, however, regret my time spent with these generics of the decorating world. Because of them, I was able to experience, up-close, personal and first hand, the physics of the barstool and how it must function as a workhorse as well For printing your a quote next job. on CALL TODAY US

as a design element. First, a barstool or counter stool is made to the height that allows you to reach a kitchen or bar counter. My 24-year-old self was naïve about practicalities so the boxes that I schlepped home in my Ford Pinto contained stools that measured 30 inches in height. My counters were 36 inches high so 30-inch stools would slide under them just fine, right? Wrong! There are some things that we are born knowing, like how to breathe. There are some things that we learn in school, like 36 inches minus 30 inches leaves 6 inches. There are some things that we just have to learn by experience, like the fact that the human leg needs 10 to 12 inches to clear the overhang of the counter. Not wanting to admit my mistake, I spent the next two years doing the bar stool straddle and acting as if it was perfectly normal and acceptable. The first order of business when selecting stools is to get the height right. Counter stools, approximately 24 inches in height, are meant for use with average kitchen counter overhangs. Bar height, approximately 28 inches high, are

intended for bars and raised kitchen counters. Measure the area under your counter and allow 10 to 12 inches for legs. The bases of stools are typically made of wood or metal. The key here is that the wood be hardwood and furniture grade if they are to last. No matter how good they look on day one, cheap stools are destined to behave like the ones I purchased out of naivety. Stools can feature wood seats or be upholstered with fabric or leather. If upholstered stools will be used for meals on a regular basis, consider selecting an indoor/ outdoor fabric for ease of cleaning. Leather is easy to wipe off making it a solid choice, as well Stools should be solid enough to hold the weight of a hefty guest and solid enough to resist tipping over while hold a wiggling 6-year-old. Backs and arms give a more secure feel and add a bit of safety for children. Vicky Earley is the principal designer for Artichoke Designs in Carmel.

Removing a pantry opens up the kitchen and allows for an improved flow and even more cabinet space. (Submitted photos)

Footprint change has big impact Commentary by Larry Greene

This 2002 home was built by the current owners before they were an active family. The kitchen that functioned well blueprint for for them at first, now improvement could not keep up with their growing needs. “We have two young children who are always running around,” said the homeowner. “We needed more space.” The family loves the neighborhood, so had no interest in moving. Remodeling was the best option. Original design: A wall that housed a foyer closet and kitchen pantry encroached on the breakfast area, making it tough to fit the family. “There was not enough room,” said the homeowner. “We did not want to expand out the back of the house because we had just invested in a new patio area. We needed a designer to help us figure out how we could get the space we needed without demolishing the whole house.” Design phase: Our designer suggested that the wall with the closet and pantry be removed, and replaced with a spot for the refrigerator and new pantry cabinetry. The family already had a

mudroom that could handle the closet items, and the new cabinetry would hold even more than the original closet pantry. This reconfiguration opened up the breakfast nook area, turning it into a full dining space option. Moving the refrigerator also allowed for additional cabinetry and countertops within the original footprint. With the newly opened kitchen, the homeowners decided to install hand-scraped hardwood floors on the entire first level, enhancing the open feel of the whole space. Trim and bead board were added to the original island to make it look like a piece of furniture. Final result: “Before, I felt like I was working in half a kitchen,” said the homeowner. “Now I have more space, more countertops and more storage. The design opened up my whole house without changing the square footage. The new pantry cabinets keep us better organized too.” Larry Greene is the owner of Case Design/Remodeling Indy, a fullservice design/build remodeling firm serving Boone, Hamilton, and Marion Counties.
